Narrative:
The Cessna 550, N622PG, was substantially damaged during a runway excursion after landing at the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ), Florida, USA. The pilot and the front-seat passenger incurred minor injuries.
The flight departed Boca Raton Airport (BCT), Florida, about 18:27.
The airplane landed on runway 22 at Sarasota, a dry, 5,000-foot-long, 150-foot-wide, grooved, asphalt runway. After landing, the airplane continued 120 feet beyond the departure end of the runway and came to rest in the grass overrun area. Skid marks that aligned directly with the airplane's tire tracks in the grass began 1,130 feet prior to the departure end of the runway.
Postaccident examination revealed a puncture in the pressure vessel aft of the nose landing gear, and damage to the bulkhead belly stringers. Functional testing of the brakes showed that they were operational and did not reveal evidence of any pre- or post-impact mechanical anomalies.
Weather reported at SRQ at the time of the accident included few clouds at 2,200 and 3,100 feet, 10 miles of visibility and calm winds.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's failure to attain the proper touchdown point and to adequately slow the airplane within the available runway, which resulted in a runway overrun."
